RAISE THE ROOF

To kick start the weekend a treat from The Presets in the form of their new track 'Youth in Trouble.' 

This makes our eyes go funny like those Magic Eye puzzles...raise the roof, stack the shelves! R.A.V.E

 

And a flashback to the Romance Was Born/The Presets collaboration for their ARIA performance in 2008...

MEMPHIS

MEMPHIS was a Milan collective of young furniture and product designers helmed by Ettore Sottsass.Formed in 1981, MEMPHIS dominated the 80's design world with their post-modernist style.  Some pieces would look pretty at home in Tom Hank's apartment in the 1988 film Big.

I AM ELEVEN national release kicks off in Melbourne July 5, then Perth July 12, then Brisbane, Byron and Sydney July 19.

TIGERLILY SALE // GET ONTO IT!

VER$ACE'S PALACE CAN BE YOURS

Have some extra coins? You're in luck, Gianni Versace's South Beach home is up for sale for a cool $125 million, making it the most expensive home for sale in the U.S.

Since Gianni Versace was murdered on the front doorstep of the mansion in 1992, it has been home to entrepreneur Peter Loftin, who restored the property to its former glory. The enormous beach estate boasts 10 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and fresco embellished courtyard,as well as the mosaic-tilled outdoor pool lined in 24-karat gold!









COSMIC WONDER

Inspired by Prometheus, a film very worth while seeing - despite the average reviews.  Watching Michael Fassbender play David is worth every penny of that over-inflated movie ticket.

A Happy Death

AHD - A Happy Death is quite possibly the coolest card co. around, featuring some sharp work from artists such as Billie Justice Thomson (Melb), Mark Drew (Tokyo) and Kyle Montgomery (Syd).  A pretty big incentive to send snail mail magic, and finally an alternative to sending ironic kitten cards (though they do that too).







A little...
